This week Sunday Night Tim Noonan has an exclusive interview with former millionaire Andrew Kalajzich, who was released from jail in February after being convicted of the 1986 murder of his wife Megan.
The case became the subject of the Colin Friels telemovie My Husband My Killer and an episode of Crime Investigation Australia.
Upon his release in February the Sydney Morning Herald speculated, “at least one TV network is confident of securing an exclusive interview, having put forward a detailed request complete with an offer of financial support to the Kalajzich family before his release. But any payment would come under intense scrutiny from authorities under laws preventing anyone giving the impression they are profiting from their crimes.”
Exclusive: Andres Kalazjich Interview – Did he do it?
It’s one of Australia’s most infamous murders. A millionaire businessman, dubbed the ‘King of Manly’, who’d cheated on his wife. Andrew Kalajzich was convicted of paying a hit man to break into their waterfront mansion and shoot her as they lay in bed together. After 25 years in jail, Andrew Kalajzich is a free man, back at the scene of the crime, back in the house where his wife Megan was shot. He says police got it wrong, and he’s spent all his millions to prove he was framed. Now, in an exclusive interview with Sunday Night’s Tim Noonan, he’s ready to talk for the first time and he wants Australia to judge his explosive evidence. It’s a nail biting interview, and a dramatic walk through of the murder scene. Then comes the lie-detector test, and an outcome no-one could have predicted.
Imagine going to sleep and not waking up for eight months. This extraordinary behaviour is normal living for about 500 people around the world – including three Australians – who suffer from one of the world’s most bizarre conditions – Kleine-Levin Syndrome otherwise known as Sleeping Beauty Disease. Doctors know little about KLS, but believe it is triggered by something as everyday as the common cold. It usually strikes victims in their teens and can last for more than a decade before vanishing as quickly as it came. Sunday Night’s Rahni Sadler follows a Tamworth teenager who spends almost half of every year asleep. Analeigh has tried to complete high school many times, but falls asleep before she can finish exams. As people around her grow up and move on, Analeigh wakes from her slumber, oblivious to what she’s missed out on. Sunday Night also goes to Hawaii to meet another teenage victim, just coming out of the disease. She has spent five of the past eight years asleep, missing huge chunks of her life.
